Would you know how to support a friend, a family member or a colleague experiencing a mental health concern - or how to support your own mental health?

We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health...

Mental Health First Aid will teach you to listen, reassure and respond - even in moments of crisis. You will learn to recognise the warning signs of poor mental health, and will develop the skills to confidently approach and support someone - (potentially even preventing a crisis) - whilst keeping yourself safe.

Mental health education empowers people to canre for themselves - and for others - through awareness and understanding. Our mission is to reduce stigma and to break down the barriers to the support that people may need to manage their symptoms – to thrive in learning, work and life.

Our accredited instructors are experienced in delivering MHFA England's MHFAider® certification, as well as the Mental Health First Aider (Youth) and the MHFA Refresher training. Our portfolio also includes MHFA England's Mental Health Skills for Managers, the MHFA Workplace Champion, MHFA Youth Champion and MHFA Higher Education Champion accredited certifications.

Our Instructors are Level 3 Qualified Mental Health First Aiders, (certified through the Royal Society for Public Health), ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) certified - and hold the Level 3 Qualification in Education and Training.

Colin Bailey

Founder and Chief Wellness Officer

"In a previous life", Colin dedicated the best part of 30 years to corporate leadership roles – embodying a definite work-life imbalance.

He has personally experienced how stress, anxiety and depression are interwoven with our health – both physically and mentally. (Something which was irrevocably reinforced when his father – a widely respected medical practitioner – died by suicide in September, 2014.)

A multi-award-winning Neurozone-certified MasterCoach, Colin is also a certified High Performance Master, supporting professionals with work-life balance, stress-reduction and resilience.

Colin is certified in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and is also an NLP Master Practitioner.

Colin - an MHFA England Associate Instructor - is the Mental Health First Aid Trainer for London's University of Roehampton and also partners with The Molly Rose Foundation in the hope of preventing young suicides - and empowering young adults to forge the best possible foundations for their futures.

People with severe mental health disorders have a 10–25 year reduction in life expectancy.

Approximately one in four people in The UK will experience a mental health problem each year.

More than one in seven people report experiencing mental health problems in the workplace.

“Absolutely brilliant instructor and course content, highly recommend the MHFA training! Colin had a fantastic mix of being approachable, speaking from experience and inserting humour where appropriate. This made very heavy topics more manageable and 'enjoyable' to learn about. I would definitely take more of his courses... I cannot think of anything that would have made the experience even better…”

“I have been involved with raising awareness and discussion about Mental Health for some years, yet I learned many new things in 2 days, and learned how to respond appropriately and effectively in a Mental Health crisis. I strongly recommend to anyone to take up the course, no matter their role or industry..”

“Colin delivered the sessions with great energy and great attention to detail. Each session was enjoyable and informative, and I felt well supported throughout the process. It is clear that Colin has thorough knowledge and additionally went above and beyond... I genuinely looked forward to each session and learning more about Mental Health and supporting others.
